India vs Australia 1st Test Adelaide: With the 1st Test starting in less than 24 hours, India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar wanted to surprise Bharat Army, but got surprised himself. At the Adelaide cricket ground, where India’s renowned fans, the Bharat Army was present for the net session, Bhuvi went up to meet them. That is when the Bharat Army sang a song in honour of the bowler and that floored the cricketer. He was so happy that he even went on to ask what was their inspiration, which one of them said that there are so many songs on batsmen hence we wanted to change the trend.
“There’s probably more Indian supporters than Australian supporters here at the grounds so yeah, it does feel like a home game wherever we go now,” a fan Kartik Ayyalasomayajula told AFP.
Here is the video posted by BCCI.
